Comments: Funny you should say that ... he picked himself up, dusted himself off, and nailed it a few minutes later. But was unhappy that it wasn't totally clean.

Comments: I think it would count as one route! Ha, thought you had me!

Imagine the Challenge at Red Rock or Yosemite. I did ~70 pitches last week ... but only 7 routes.

Comments: I'd do it either way, depending on what experience I'm after. Great little belay in the alcove/crow's nest. Or do it in one pitch and manage your pro so that there isn't rope drag.

Comments: I think 1 - 1.5 hours is the estimated time for the most direct/easterly approach? (Took us 1.5 hours, last week. Familiar with the area, but had never done that exact approach before.)

Comments: No wonder there was so much rope drag!

Hey wait, I thought Burt was belaying? Thank goodness he at least tied me off before he scrambled around to take the picture!

Comments: We continued on to the top of the E summit, then followed the cairns across the knife-edge W to the main summit.

Great day! The first 3 pitches are very nice, and we found two more pitches up higher by continuing straight up, ~ 5.8 - 5.10, depending on how you approached the final bulge.

Comments: A description of the West bluff towers circuit would make a nice addition here. I'm thinking you could provide an overview, with links to individual routes pages?

Comments: James! I too have been thinking we need a place to post linkups and circuits! This is the place for our DL "Astro-Boy"!

I think this "area" should include either the word "linkup" or "circuit" in the title.

Comments: The ring bolt was placed in the 1960s by one of those Stettner boys ... ask around the CMC about it! At that point, they had already been climbing there for a few decades.

The Wisconsin State Historical Society has a photo of someone on top of the Needle from the 1910s by H.H. Bennett
